    Hi, How long does it typically take from arrival, to check in at Carribean Beach resort? Trying to see when we should book our lunch reservation on the first day. Thanks so much!!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Adrian. We just love helping you plan a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     You're going to love Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. The tropical landscaping and laidback vibe make this unique Resort hotel one of my family's favorites! 

     If you'll be using Disney's Magical Express for complimentary transportation to your Resort hotel, I would plan on allotting up to 120 minutes from the time you land at the airport until you arrive at your hotel, just to be safe. Once you arrive at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, the check-in process shouldn't take much longer than 30 minutes. If you complete the online check-in process, though, you may be able to bypass the Front Desk altogether!

     Traveling from Pennsylvania to Florida is enough of an adventure for one day, so my family tries to take it easy on arrival day. We explore our Resort hotel, grab lunch from the Quick-Service location, take a dip in the pool, and visit Disney Springs for dinner and some shopping before turning in early. That way, we're well-rested and ready to hit the theme parks first thing the next morning!

     I hope this was helpful, Adrian. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
